Federal Pell and SEOG are forms of assistance offered by the U.S Department of Education that do not have to be repaid.
These grants are restricted to undergraduate students who have not yet earned their first baccalaureate degree. Eligibility for these sources of funding is determined by a family’s Expected Family Contribution (EFC) which is derived from the information provided on their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
A student’s amount of Pell is influenced by their enrollment at the end of each add/drop period and their final FAFSA EFC. A student’s amount of SEOG is capped at $4000, however, not all students will receive this award or maximum amount since the College’s yearly allocation issued by U.S. Department of Education is limited.
